Singer Hwasa was reported to the police by a group of parents after her performance at a university festival.
Hwasa’s agency, P Nation, responded to the matter on the 10th of July, stating, “We are aware that the police are currently reviewing the case.”
Earlier that day, the Seoul Seongdong Police Station stated that the Student Parents’ Rights Protection Association had recently filed a complaint against Hwasa on charges of performing an obscene act during the festival, and an investigation has been initiated.
It was revealed that the Student Parents’ Rights Protection Association filed the complaint against Hwasa, claiming that her performance at the university festival in May caused discomfort among the audience due to its inappropriate nature.
According to the complaint, “Hwasa performed actions that were completely unrelated to the context under the pretext of dancing during the festival. Her actions were sufficient to evoke feelings of shame and disgust among the audience, as they could be reminiscent of perverted sexual relations.”
In May, Hwasa sparked controversy with her provocative dance performance at a university festival in Seoul’s Jongno district. However, there were also opinions suggesting that since the performance was targeted towards college students, it should be viewed as art.
